“Spent a week......”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for a week with another couple over Easter. We spent a lot of time deciding where to stay and were so glad we chose Butlers Bend. The views of the river, valley and mountains are beautiful and the wildlife (including kangaroos and birds) is great. The only downside for two couples staying here is that the villas only have one bathroom. The villa was immaculate when we arrived (if only we kept it that way!). We really enjoyed the fireplace and the bbq got a good workout. If you are looking for a great place to stay with beautiful surrounds in Aireys Inlet, this is it.

Stayed here in June. It was freezing but the fireplace kept us warm and cosy. Gorgeous villa, comfy bed, super clean and great service from the owners. Have stayed in a few places in Aireys Inlet over the years (we have family there) and would have to stay this is by far the best. Only wish we had tried it out years ago. Highly recommended!

We have just returned home after a terrific time of visiting and exploring the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. What a spectacular part of the Australian coastline and John and Pam have the ideal location to base your journeys from in Butlers Bend Holiday Villas at Aireys Inlet. My wife and I travelled with our two sons (2, 4) and we loved every minute of it. There was a reluctance to leave the comfort and surroundings of Butlers Bend to travel the Great Ocean Road as we were so comfortable where we were; however knowing that we had Butlers Bend to come home to each day made it all worthwhile. John and Pam were great hosts and their local knowledge of what to do, things to see and the best way to get there was invaluable. The quality of accommodation was first rate. The Villas are surprisingly spacious (accommodated the four of us for five days very comfortably) and to our delight, after experiencing other holiday cottages and houses, Butlers Bend was immaculately clean. Without being in the least be obtrusive, John made sure that everything was in order – from ensuring we had plenty of firewood to offering suggestions for day trips, meals and even the best bait to use for fishing for elusive bream in the neighbouring creek.

The kids loved Pam’s friendly manner and genuine interest in what they had been doing each day.

Butlers Bend Holiday Villas are ideally located in Aireys Inlet, everything from shops to restaurants to the local pub and beaches were an easy walk.

Thanks so much for your hospitality John and Pam. We loved our visit and will definitely return and have no hesitation in recommending Butlers Bend to friends and fellow travelers.
